Who profits from Cape wind farm? 

In his March 27 letter to this paper, Paul Mason chastises Cape Vincent anti-wind residents and taxpayers as rumor-mongers and blames them for the divide in the community. He essentially says we are uninformed. That is a generalized argument all its own. But he is correct on one score.

There is one thing, I must admit, we do not know for sure and I can’t get an answer to at the St. Lawrence Wind Farm office. Perhaps he’d like to help us all out and give us the answer. Of all the members of the Planning Board, and/or any other board for that matter, how many members stand to profit from the wind farm? How much? Their families? How about state Sen. Darrel Aubertine?

Why has the ethics commission suggested that they recuse themselves from voting on the wind issue? These are fair questions, Mr. Mason, since these folks chose to run for office and legitimately expose themselves to such questions. So in the interest of clearing up any rumor and misinformation in the future, please let me know where I can find these answers. Better yet, why don’t you write back to this paper and have them publish the details?
